Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany your home away from home

The region of Saxony-Anhlat is in the central north east of Germany and is one of 16 member states. It was formerly part of the Federal state of East Germany. The capital of the region is the beautiful town of Magdeburg. This scenic area is due in part to its location on the banks of the Elbe and Saale rivers and is at the heart of German history. The Reformation began at Wittenberg where Martin Luther taught at the university. Saxony-Anhalt includes the Harz Mountains and the Saale-Unstut region to the southeast of the mountains is dotted with castles. Further north are the fertile Magdeburger Börde and the Altmark heathlands.

Things to Do in Saxony-Anhalt

Go wine-tasting in the vineyards of the Saale and Unstrut region which are the most northerly wine growing areas in Germany. Take a guided tour of the winery before sampling the local produce. For quieter days out, stroll along the riverbanks of the Elbe with its meadows filled with wildlife. Tour the delightful towns from your holiday rental in Saxony-Anhalt by car, walking, cycling or on a guided tour. See the impressive architecture and learn about the history of this lovely area. Many cathedrals and towns are associated with Martin Luther and provide cultural and educational visits.

Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, is a leafy town packed with historical buildings in its shady tree-lined streets.

The splendid town of Wernigerode has just celebrated its 775th anniversary and has a delightful collection of half-timbered houses including the Smallest House, the Crooked House and the ornate Town Hall. Visitors should include the remarkable landscape gardens of Dessau-Wörlitz, the medieval town of Quedlinburg, the largest preservation area in Germany and the fascinating Bauhaus "master houses" in Dessau to their list of must-see places in Saxony-Anhalt. They are all listed UNESCO World Heritage sites. Merseberg was a seat of royalty and has a multi-turreted cathedral and a castle overlooking the scenic River Saale.

I would just like to thank Wichert and Dagmar for their very warm welcome at 'Der alte Kutscherhof'. We felt at home straight away! The property is well situated for walks and runs in lovely countryside with a large stream following the valley floor. The interior of the apartment has been renovated to a high standard and the beds are very comfortable. It is well placed for day trips to Wernigerode, Thale and other cultural towns in the Harz and for winter sports lovers, Braunlager is only 15 - 20min drive away. The 'Harz Schmalspur Bahnen' runs near by - we took the train from Drei Ahnen Hohne, well worth doing, the journey up to the Brocken was spectacular! The only down side was the lack of snow - but you can't have everything. However, the scenery of the Harz more than made up for it! The only reason I gave a 6 for cleaning was that the down stairs washing machine was out of use when we were there - as it turned out, I only had to do one quick hand wash, so it wasn't a real issue. Once again, thank you to Dagmar and her family for making us feel most welcome. We look forward to visiting again.

We have a few wonderful weeks in Gisela. Reception and accommodation were very welcoming. The cottage was clean and well maintained. Every day we had fresh strawberries or cherries. The host had good tips, but was not bothersome presence. There were days that we saw no one, but found a filled container. The bus stopped at the door, which was a luxury we did not have to drive yourself and saw that way very much. All in all, highly recommended to have another go.
